Good Vibes, Good Times | Piroska Czako-Radvanyi

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all doing well. Today I brought you a layout I made for the CSI challenge Nr. 323. I was inspired by the carousel theme, and used the Carousel collection of Maggie Holmes.

Last summer we visited the amusement park in Budapest. Unfortunately the old park has been closed, but a few of the older machines are still there as a part of the zoo. The Schäftner carousel is also very old, it has been built in 1908. It is gorgeous, with all those old figures and gold accents. I had to sit on it and make a photo ;-P

For this layout I used the Good Vibes Good Times cut file.

I cut it from smooth white cardstock and backed only one part of them with patterned paper, because the background paper (Prize / Carousel, Maggie Holmes) I chose, had a great pattern: the yellow triangle is like an arrow pointing at my photo, so I didn’t want to cover that effect.

I fussy cut some B&W flowers of the Belle paper of the same collection as we are also wearing black (dark blue) and white clothes on the photo. I matted the photo with patterned papers, one of them has gold foil to reflect on the carousel.

I added some die cuts and chipboard pieces to the layout to reflect on the theme more. Finally I added some gold stars from the ephemera pack of the collection.

I hope you are also going to play along at CSI. YOu can find all the details on their blog or Facebook group. And don’t forget to grab some new cut files at the CUT to YOU shop! 😉
